Permitting, Inspections and Enforcement

new momentum system and services

Welcome to DPIE!

DPIE is experiencing lengthy delays in permit application and building plan reviews for several reasons:  higher than normal application submittals, staff shortages due to retirement, staff resignations and other factors.  To address these delays, DPIE is utilizing overtime, employing contract plan reviewers and providing residential templates for deck design to reduce review times. DPIE is also providing outreach community information sessions to walk residents through processes.
